    In the United States, the New York City Ballet is starting a new season despite an ongoing abuse scandal.

    The company has lost three of its top dancers after they were accused of sharing sexually explicit photos of their colleagues.

    The case has exposed what some are calling a culture of poor treatment of women in the ballet world.
